Covid Situation in Switzerland
Updated 29 October
Requirement to quarantine for 14 days when travelling to the UK from Switzerland.
Since 29 October visitors to Switzerland from the UK are no longer required to quarantine.
We have all seen the recent reporting about how the COVID rate has increased in Europe with much of the continent now enveloped in a second wave. Switzerland has not been immune to this and it too has seen dramatically rising infection rates. As such rules have been tightening and it is now mandatory to wear face masks in all public places and maintain social distancing where possible.
In terms of what this means for ski holidays (in brief), face coverings are required in cable cars and social distancing is required in lift queues. For lifts which are open air (chairlifts and T-bars) face coverings are not required. In restaurants tables are now more spaced with more partitioning between them; like in the UK you are required to wear a face mask until seated. Bars and restaurants are required to close at 11pm. We will update this section more comprehensively when the ski season starts in earnest and we have a clearer idea of exactly how skiers are impacted.
